“And the Scriptures agree, for it is written: There is no one who always does what is right, no, not even one!”
Romans 3:10 TPT
If the scriptures agree, therefore it is an establishment of Truth,
That not one person always does what is right,
then why is it that we look so often on the flesh to determine the things of the Spirit?
I just had this conversation with my man last night.
It’s hard to listen to what some people have to say, because we know them.
“We know what they did last summer.”
Some may not remember that movie, but it was about a haunting of the past summer’s dreadful events.
We to, often allow others past mistakes to forfeit our hearts from every trusting that truths could ever come from them.
It’s like throwing the baby out with the bath water.
I’m reminded of King Saul this morning.
He was anointed by God.
David knew that.
And although Sauls character never could uphold the weight of the anointing,
It didn’t change the anointing from being there, and even at work at times.
And that was Old Covenant- when the Spirit came and went.
Praise God, because of Jesus, the Holy Spirit will never leave us!
So, just think about that.
If the Spirit never leaves us, or those speaking to us, then when we see them after that aspect, He’s always speaking.
But if we look at their flesh, we lose sight of the diamond inside of them.
We have to remember that none of us are qualified because of behavior, or our own merit.
Jesus is the perfect One.
And so is His Spirit inside of us.
So, I want to encourage you today, to draw from the Spirit.
Whether in yourself, or your spouse, or your friend,
If you start seeing what’s really in you, and them, then God can have His way.
As long as we keep binding ourselves and others to the fleshly old life, that’s what we’ll draw from.
But we’ve been told that we can draw from the wells of salvation.
Look around you, they are everywhere!
